In this post we’ll install a Global Services Manager. The software can be downloaded from here – Oracle Database 12c Release 1 Global Service Manager (GSM/GDS) (188.8.131.52.0) for Linux x86-64
I’ll be installing the Global Services Manager on the 12c Developer Days VM. The VM is a pre configured system and should have enough of the prerequisites already installed.
Once downloaded unzip the file and run runInstaller.sh.
A pretty simple and painless installation. In the next instalment we’ll setup a demo and connect to a Global Data Service.
